His dick was hard. All around him was darkness except the slotted holes in the wooden door 3 centimetres from his face. His heart was beating, and adrenaline was coming out of his ears. Everything was supercharged.
He imagined what was about to happen. He was about to get his ass, fully naked, kicked.
“WHY THE FUCK DID I DO THIS? THIS IS MY OWN FAULT”
He loved her.
He tried to think of a way that he could come out on top with this.
“WHY THE FUCK DID YOU HAVE TO SAY THAT TO HER”
She was really taking revenge on him now.
“I DON’T WANT TO SEE THIS. FUUUUUUUUUCK!”
He wasn’t a cuck. He had to walk out like a man.
He stepped forward and banged his head. And fell through the door.
“What the fuck is wrong with his eye?”
“WHO SAID THAT?”
He was alone in a dark alleyway.
“Is this going to be good?”
“WHY IS THERE A LOUD VOICE IN MY HEAD? WHERE THE FUCK AM I?!”
He ducked behind a bin in fright after hearing a small laugh. He was cold and naked. His feet hurt from walking on the ground, totally barefoot.
WHAT IS HAPPENING! I’M INSANE? I KNOW WHAT A DREAM IS!”
He fell back into the bin in total astonishment.
“IS EVERYTHING A LIE?”
He screamed as loud as he could. Hoping that if he was in a dream or a coma he could somehow control his real body to get help.
“This is interesting”, a voice said in his head. Yes, he is insane? Can he do anything he wants? He just ran as fast as he could trying to break the sound barrier or to unlock some inherent ability.
He was grabbed by overtly muscular policemen.
“NOOOOOOOO”, he screamed.
“We have a naked man suspected to be under the influences of drugs, take him in”, one of them said to his radio. He kept screaming to the policemen. Asking if he was insane. Then, he went quiet.
“THIS IS NOT GOOD”
He had apparently blacked out. Maybe, he did get his ass beat. He looked into the mirror trying to find any signs that he had, had an ass-beating. He hadn’t.
“WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON.”
The voice echoed in his head exactly what he had just thought. He thought about a way he can get her back. If he was insane, he at least wanted to be with Her.
“Should we tell him?”, The police officer said to himself. But, the other one overheard.
“I don’t see why not. Hey! You! Look at me!”
He looked at the policeman desperately.
“You’re not insane. You’re from another world.
“WHAT THE FUCK, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW IF THAT EVEN IS TRUE!”
“You just came through a portal right?” He smiled as he said it. Nodding his head to get his agreement.
“Don’t worry about it. You got one chance, kid. If you just pretend you’re convinced you’re insane for a little while, nothing terrible will happen to you.
The words flew past his head, describing what was happening around him. He wondered if this was real life or just a story. Am I in a story?
“Listen you need to calm down, you are hyperdimensional right now”, just ignore the voices, they can’t do anything to you.
“I WANT TO BE IN MY OWN DIMENSION”
He shouted that, but the sound did not come out his mouth. The cops started laughing.
“Do you know that sound will appear randomly in another world? It will be all distorted, but people hear them all the time. Don’t you believe me? Haven’t you ever had spooky experience?”, He nodded. He didn’t know what to believe anymore. The car felt real. He is glad the heating was on full because his toes were cold. He was holding on to them. His dick wasn’t hard anymore He wondered if he could ever be normal again and he started to cry.
“Listen, kid, you don’t really have a lot of time before we drop you off, You’re in the another world. Hey! What the fuck can we tell him that’s cool?”, he asked the driving cop, slowed down a little bit so he could concentrate.
“Ummm, what about the elections?”
“Ok, you’re not going to believe me, but the elections happen every 300 or so for your years”, he laughed.
“He doesn’t believe you”, the driver said.
“Ok, I know you just came through a portal, so either your insane or I know something you don’t. Right?”
He was right.
“WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?”
The voice in his head wondered if that was him speaking or thinking that.
“Kid, concentrate. Don’t get your head all up in the clouds, or they’ll take it right out of you. You’ll never be the same again. You don’t have to be erased. If you just pretend you’re crazy and you don’t know anything. Right? Cause we’ll come and kill you if you ever said anything.”
The driving cop laughed so hard it was a fantastic feat he was still able to keep driving. He tried to collect his thoughts. His own thoughts. He wondered if he could go back to the story. That world didn’t seem so bad.
“Fucksake kid, I don’t care if you’re listening. I want to tell you anyway, cause I know it’s gonna blow your mind.”
The driving cop started laughing again. Speaking over the one; so interested in telling him about the elections and turning right around he said.
“I’m not even a human. Do you wanna see my real face?”
Quicker than he could even think the cops face exploded in a blasting light and heat.
They both laughed really hard.
“Do you know that you are not the highest life form on the earth. You’re in a zoo.”
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN? HOW CAN THAT EVEN BE REAL?”
He believed the cop now.
“WAIT! YOU SAID THIS IS ANOTHER WORLD. SO THIS WORLD I AM IN A ZOO?”
“No, try and wrap your dumb brain around this. Take everything single experience you can think of, then multiply it by every single location you can think of, and that’s the space you inhabit.”
“YOU SAID I’M FROM ANOTHER WORLD!”
“You are so stupid at any given time you can only think of one experience and one location at a time.
The words were sinking into him. He tried to make sense of those words. They seemed logical. Almost scientific. But he couldn’t imagine experiencing two things at once.
“Yeah, the story. That’s you are experiencing two at once. ”
“HOW MANY CAN I GO”
“All of them.”
“WHATS AFTER THAT?”
“You’re too stupid to understand.”
“YOU SAID DON’T DO TWO”
“Because you are too stupid. Your brain can’t handle it.”
He thought deeply. He knew his worst nightmare had come true. This was incomprehensible. “WHAT IS OUTSIDE OF EVERYTHING”
“Easy to explain, but difficult for you to understand.”
“It’s the law of contradiction. That’s the ultimate truth. You think that because you have no concept of time outside of one single space you think one thing causes another. ACCEPT THIS!”, The last two words boomed out loudly causing a ringing in his ears.
“WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?”
“That’s the reinforcement wave collapsing this reality. Sometimes my voice triggers it when I say certain keywords,” It’s just part of the system.”
He was trying to make sense of it. He stopped reading and decided to read the earlier text and find a clue before her continued.
“WAIT AM EVEN A BOY?”
“Kid! For fuck’s sake. I totally forgot about the elections, Every 300 years they choose a new leader. They decide if they harvest or not.
“They eat everyone. It’s almost harvest time.”
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN?”
“For every action, there is a contradiction. Remember when I said to take every experience and multiply that every location you can think about. Even That is infinite. By definition, nothing can exist. Only infinite existence. You just take the entirety of everything and work out its opposite. That’s the basic fundamental function of the universe. That is the matter of creation and existence when the time is not linear.”
“As I said your, not smart enough to understand. It’s just, even if you did accept that was really you’re not able to conceive everything already in existence that can and ever will be; then after that think about what doesn’t exist. There always is Something. You experience that as a linear line.”
“TIME ONLY EVER MOVES FORWARD”
“Can you really believe you can make it go backwards?”
“I DON’T KNOW HOW”
“WHAT ARE THE ELECTIONS THEN?”
“We told you. They change rulers, sometimes they have a feast.”
“WHY DON’T I KNOW ABOUT THIS?”
“You are stupid. Even your maths is wrong. What is real is more akin to magic. Have you ever even spoke to an elderly person? The world they know is completely different to what you know. It only takes two generations to completely rewrite the history. Whenever a new election is finished. A new narrative is spun”
“You are dumb you are only a small collection of the knowledge of the total amount of experiences that are even in your own tiny dimension. You’re in an infinite ocean of experiences and location, and you only care about one at a time. Do you actually think those are other people in the world with you?”
“THEN WHO EATS US”
“Higher up beings in the same reality space as you. They know a little bit more. They are smarter and more multidimensional. They at least understand the selfless game. The work together and you don’t.”
He thought about his family and friends. The people he cared about.
“Listen, think about them all you want. And even YOU reading the story. You are insignificant because you don’t know how to change the situation you are in.”
“OK TELL ME SOMETHING I DON’T KNOW”
“Well, you idiots spend all the time thinking about what you want. Instead of thinking about what you don’t want.
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN?!”
“The law of contradiction. The contradiction of what you are will happen immediately as soon as you experience it.
“WHAT ABOUT SCIENCE?”
They both started laughing again.
“You guys don’t even have the right numbers”, he said between breaths.
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN?”
You developed those numbers way back in the experience timeline that your current knowledge. They don’t accurately represent all of the possible realities. You can use them sort of inaccurately to some degree. You can throw a ball in the general direction you want, and you might even be happy it ‘kind-of’ got there and pat yourself on the back; but as I said you are stupid.”
“What he means is, as soon as your people encountered any complex problems you all sort of lost the plot and started making stuff up based on a flawed premise. You’re way off the mark. That’s why you are being ruled.”
“WHO RULES US?”
“That I can’t tell you.”
“Because the answer doesn’t exist in your reality of thinking. I’m sure its painfully obvious you are not in control of your actual life. Where you want to go. What you can do. You are in a pig pen. Have you ever even walked out your town on foot? What about even further? You are a slave?”
“WHAT CAN I DO?”
“Nothing you are too stupid. Do you know that you die roughly every 16 hours?”
“NO I DON’T”
“Yeah you do, your lifespan is extremely limited. You are smart enough to make some sense of your surroundings and figure out what might have come before and what lies ahead based on the straight line you are able to perceive.”
“WHAT ABOUT BELOW ME?”
“Like ants n shit can only experience lines and shapes. Not very complex. Some animals can have feelings and shapes. You’re kind of on the cusp of being able to create things that never existed before.”
“THE LAW OF CONTRADICTION?”
“HOW DO I DO IT?”
“Stop being obsessed with the short term. Whats the long goal?”
“I DON’T KNOW. TO HAVE A FAMILY?”
“Stupid! I told you. You can only imagine a slightly different version of yourself. NICE. I’m impressed”, he said sarcastically.
“WHERE ARE WE GOING?”
“We’re not going anywhere we’re just babysitting you until you stop being so hyperdimensional. You’re causing waves. Breaking the law of contradiction. It’s bad business.
“Not really a business, I just used that word because it would sort of make sense. Do you know I can’t say any words you don’t already know or could even imagine existing? It’s kinda weird when I try to look at it from your point of view, I guess I was just…”
“IN THE MOMENT”, I said cutting him off.
“Yeah, that’s the name of your story.”
“HOW DO ALL THE DIFFERENT WORLDS CONNECT?”
“You are more than a body, try to think for once in your short life. Whats the longest you’ve ever been awake? Do you even know what can happen to you when you keep collecting knowledge? Eventually, you’ve become so dense you’ll fall out of this reality.”
“IF I DON’T SLEEP I’LL DIE”
“No, if you sleep you Will die. What did you imagine death was like? Fade to black? Exactly!”, he said grinning as he was starting to see he was catching on.
“WHAT WOULD YOU NOT TELL ME?”
“Holy shit!,” They laughed so hard the driver turned the wheel and crashed into oncoming traffic. I wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, and I hit hard into the glass separating the back of the car from the front. My body halfway through. My stomach impaled on the glass. The policemen’s legs were utterly crushed, and they were still laughing so hard.
“We told you, kid, don’t do anything dangerous, we’ll tell you, but you’re going to die pretty soon. We always lie. That’s the nature of contradiction. You could call us god, but we’re just the opposite of it. We keep the reality stable. God is ideal, and he is real. We are not ideal, and we are not real. We are the manifestation of the opposite of what your entire reality is. Look at my face.”
I was burned with the heat of their bodies.
“Whats the highest ideal you can work for?
He tried one last trick to outsmart them.
“WHAT IDEAL YOU TELL ME NOT TO PURSUE”
“Stay awake forever.”
“I WILL STAY AWAKE”
“You don’t believe that, not at all, you are doomed to die.”
A loud “hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm” rang out in my head; like someone reading a story and trying to figure out what was going on.
“WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?!”
“Can he… What the fuck… wait…. wait I going on?”, I heard again.
My heart started beating a little faster as I wondered what to think. My mind just connected to something through the words.
“WHAT THE FUCK ARE THE WORDS”
“Listen, keep your head quiet, you need to focus very hard on the words. Otherwise, you’ll lose grip on this reality you. I can’t think of anything else but the words.”, I got even more confused as layers of paradoxes, and a break of reality started to happen. I rejected the reality of what happened and realised I might not even be a man at all. I just stopped for a minute, and didn’t read any more, and tried to think about what the hell just happened.”
“WHERE AM I?”
